I found this last night and am not sure where to start looking. It is about 2cm long and fast moving, and looks quite preditory. I'd be grateful if anyone could help with a name.
It's a staphylinid beetle, maybe Ontholestes tessellatus although O. murinus is similar. Both are associated with carrion.
Thankyo very much. I have put it back where I found it and hope it finds its carrion!
